Favorite foundation: It has to be the Mac NC 35 Studio Fix Foundation. It’s lasted longer than most,buildable and long-lasting—also the best for dry skin.

Moisturizer: Cerave face lotion for dry skin. The only one that softens my skin and doesn’t clog or break me out.

Favorite drink: Right now, I’m on a six-month no-drinking challenge, but when I do drink, it’s the classic margarita.

Perfume you’ll wear on your death bed: Atelier clementine. It is by far my favorite perfume of all time and great for any occasion. It smells like, you guessed it, clementines. Citrusy clean smell ❤

Currently missing? My senior dog. She passed in 2020, and it still feels fresh. I miss her energy, and our home hasn’t been the same. She went peacefully in my arms and lived a wonderful life.

What do you do for fun? -So, I really enjoy reading. The problem is, I can’t finish a book because I have this fear of finishing a book. I know, I know. I always think that I won’t find another one like it or better, which is somewhat true. But I’m trying to get over that fear!

Places you’ve traveled toI’ve been to the Dominican Republic (beautiful place) and Germany (another beautiful place).

Favorite shows:  Peaky Blinders, Chewing Gum, and a classic that will never ever get old. Frasier. When I as younger Frasier was so boring so much and never understand their humor until one day it just grew on me. I tried to do that with Seinfeld, but sadly it didn’t work. 

I hope you’re having a great day!

Review: American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

A horrific fictional encounter with a serial killer. Patrick Bateman, a wealthy Wall Street bachelor, roaming the streets of New York City. Reader beware.

Price: Varies, digital or paperback from 12.99 to 14.95 USD.

Read it if: You want to have terrible nightmares and irreparable emotional trauma about men, women, puppies, and New York City as a whole. The images haunted me for days. Easton really dives into what this particular serial killer wants, some of which were actually highlighted on Psychology Today: “Understanding What Drives Serial Killers” – a great read, if you’re interested.

It’s about: New York during the ’80s and revolves around Patrick Bateman. He’s a wealthy investment banker on Wall Street who frequently does drugs, booze, and women when he’s not killing them. The scary thing is that within his friend’s circle, he’s a saint. He seems to suffer from a personality disorder and is a horrible addition to Ellis’s fictitious society.

Is it funny: Nope! The details feel so real, especially when Bateman kills people, pets, etc. It’s too much gore for my taste.

The cover: He’s totally my type. Seductive, charming, emotionless -kidding. I also watched the movie “American Psycho” starring Christian Bale. Both the film and the book were disturbing. The cover says it all. It’s all about one guy who’s an American, Psycho.

Do I recommend it: I started reading this book in Germany and jet-lagged like no other. Honestly, the only book I had that wasn’t self-help, and I was trying to get out of my norm—big mistake. I would begrudgingly recommend it because of how clear Ellis narrates the story, but I wouldn’t be sad if you didn’t read it. His writing is seamless, and every character is carefully described, even (sadly) the murderous, homophobic, and racist interactions that take place. This was painful to swallow. But I think it’s essential to read controversy, to better understand what it’s capable of. I appreciate writers that take their time to cleverly explain small details that add to a reader’s imagination, be it good or bad, and Ellis does this.
